Surfers World offers surfing courses ranging from ½ day taster sessions to one week intensive courses!.These are available at all of our affiliated surf schools based in Woolacombe, Croyde, Saunton, Putsborough, Westward Ho! and now at new venues in Cornwall too. If you are unsure of where you want to learn get in touch with us either by email or phone and we can discuss all of the options with you.

We offer lessons for all abilities from complete beginner to the more advance surfer. Our lessons range from 1 to 1 sessions, groups and families. We can cater for stag and hen groups aswell. Throughout the winter months we also run more advanced coaching sessions, focusing on bigger challenging conditions.


We have an exceptional success rate with 97% of pupils standing up and riding waves by the end of the courses. Because we have a wide range of beaches on our doorstep lessons are rarely cancelled as we can normally find shelter on those extremely windy days.

Lesson prices vary depending on the number of pupils and time of year. Half day lessons are normally around £30 per person, and £90 for 1 to 1 sessions. Lessons are 2 hours long and include the cost of wetsuit and board hire, full day sessions generally have a 2 hour session in the morning, then a lunch break and another 2 hours in the afternoon.

If you don’t fancy learning to surf in the UK we also offer packages overseas. Whether you have some experience in the surf or none, we can get you in the sea and having a blast. For more information on our oversea packages CLICK HERE
